Sandalwood is increasingly being recognised for its skin healing properties. The therapeutic benefits of this powerful plant have been recognised for centuries, not only for skincare applications, but also in both Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, as well as aromatherapy. Santalum album, sourced from sustainable Australian plantations, is regarded the most potent species of Sandalwood.

Today we delve into the world of sandalwood and uncover the wonders it can work for your skin.


One of the most significant benefits of sandalwood is its anti-inflammatory properties. This makes it excellent for soothing skin irritations such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis acne and even common warts. Regular use of sandalwood can help alleviate redness, itching, and inflammation, promoting a calmer and more balanced complexion.

Natural Astringent

Sandalwood holds potent astringent properties that help tighten and tone the skin. It can effectively minimise the appearance of pores, reducing excess oil and can also support acne breakouts. As a result, incorporating sandalwood into your skincare routine can leave your skin looking smoother and more refined.


Sandalwood contains compounds that exhibit antimicrobial activity, making it effective in fighting off acne-causing bacteria. Used daily, sandalwood can help with the prevention and treatment of blemishes, so you can maintain clear skin.

Skin Brightening

Sandalwood is also known for its skin brightening properties. It has been known to even out skin tone including dark spots and hyperpigmentation, offering a more luminous and radiant complexion.


The elasticity and firmness of our skin tends to reduce as we age, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Sandalwood contains antioxidants that help to combat free radical damage, which is one for the primary causes of premature aging. Including sandalwood into your skincare routine may help to promote plumper looking skin, reducing the prominence of fine lines.
